What is a mobicon

What is a mobicon

A Mobicon Mini Straddle Carrier makes it quicker and easier to move 20 and 40ft containers around a yard. The Mobicon is a Mini Straddle Carrier of unique design where the container, when carried becomes part of the straddle carrier structure. There are currently 4 main models, the uniquely patented Two Tower which can move inside buildings, the ECO Bottom Lift Mobicon and the Top Lift & Top Lift Two High Models which use an ELME spreader to connect to containers, with the Top Lift Two High able to stack containers one over one. Mobicon Systems designed their Mini Straddle Carriers to provide more effective and economical solutions to handling containers in a low throughput environment.
